Pretty Little Things

Your pretty little wings

Yeah, those things on your back

Those pretty little things

Are covered in black

 

And your pretty little eyes

Well, they used to be blue

But even with the absence of light

They’re my favourite thing about you

 

Your pretty little smile

Now crooked on your face

That pretty little smile

Has forgot its resting place


Your pretty little wings

Took you up to the sky

Those pretty little things

Forgot what they left behind

 

Your pretty little corpse

Lying here on my floor

You left it without remorse

What did you leave it for?

 

Your pretty little legs

All nice and smooth

May they never leave I beg

May they always soothe


Your pretty little wings

Caused you to up and go

Those pretty little things

Fly to places I don’t know

 

And your pretty little face

Well, it’s all I can touch

Right now in this place

Though it isn’t much

 

Your pretty little hair

Was gold now its black

It flew everywhere

But now it’s on your back


And so I stay here

A king without its crown

A sorry state; a pitiful affair

I’m feeling down

 

My queen has gone

She has died and she has left

When it is dawn

I’ll have no-one left

 

But your pretty little wings

They are here by my side

Those pretty little things

Will watch me as the days go by


So my pretty little angel

What do you have to say

You who refused to be labelled

As the one who flew away
And so I’ll pass my days here

Watching as the sun flies by

Sitting in the cold autumn air

In the dark of the night

 

Your pretty little wings

Oh, how happy I’ll be

If those pretty little things

Could bring you back to me

I Remain Hopeful

We might have had our tough times

We might have left our joys behind

But right here, right now,  united we stand

A hope for the future, a hope for our land


I remain hopeful through the good times and the bad

I remain hopeful through the sad times and the glad

I want to be there when all fear has past

And when that hopes, comes to fruition at last


I remain hopeful



The Icognito Writer: In response to Daily Prompt: Hopeful

Set Free

Set free, what should be free

Cause everyone has their own needs

Let go, for the worries and cares

I show you to face your fears


Set free, you’re set free

You can take whatever you see

No smog, no more debris

Grow wild like a forest tree


Set free, you’re now with me

You have your own needs

Never again on your knees

You are what you see


You are set free



The Icognito Writer: Back to the happy poems

I’m Not The Only One

You and me we made a vow

For better or for worse

I can’t believe you let me down

But the proof is in the way it hurts

For months on end I’ve had my doubts

Denying every tear

I wish this would be over now

But I know that I still need you here


You say I’m crazy

‘Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done

But when you call me baby

I know I’m not the only one


You’ve been so unavailable

Now sadly I know why

Your heart is unobtainable

Even though you god knows you have mine


You say I’m crazy

‘Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done

But when you call me baby

I know I’m not the only one


I have loved you for many years

Maybe I am just not enough

You’ve made me realize my deepest fear

By lying and tearing us up


You say I’m crazy

‘Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done

But when you call me baby

I know I’m not the only one


You say I’m crazy

‘Cause you don’t think I know what you’ve done

But when you call me baby


I know I’m not the only one

Sadness And Darkness

Sadness, despair

They fill the very air

Darkness; the night

A sad and sorry plight


Where can you go? What can you do?

When sadness surrounds you?

Where can you hide? Where can you lie?

When darkness is by your side?


Sadness and Darkness



The Icognito Writer: Sorry for all the sad poems, just feeling a little down at the moment.

Hidden Away

Set me free, I say, set me free

From the darkness that’s inside

Set me free, this day, set me free

From the darkness that’s by my side


Hidden away, hidden away

I lie hidden away in the depths of the night

Hidden away, hidden away

Nothing but darkness by my side


Let me soar, you see, let me soar

Set me free from the chains at my feet

Let me soar, be free, let me soar

Away from the chains at my feet


Hidden away, hidden away

I lie hidden away in the depths of the night

Hidden away, hidden away

Nothing but darkness by my side

Moo.

When you need to pass and interview: just moo.



The Icognito Writer: Moo by Flash 365

Flash 365

Beijing is a beehive in a dirt storm.

I follow my recruiter into the officetel. She calls herself Jennifer. I don’t know her real name. She wears classes. Her English is poor.

“You will interview.”

“Okay.”

“This is good company.”

“Okay.”

In the elevator, she stares at her phone. She turns it to me.

“Who is this?”

I look at the picture. It is her, in a hat.

“You?” I say.

She makes a pouty face. She puts her phone away. She doesn’t speak to me until we arrive at the door.

“Wait.”

I wait. She goes in. I look out the window at a wall of gray smog and question my life choices. The door opens. I am led in. Jennifer leaves.

A Chinese man sits smoking a cigarette. A Nepalese man smiles at me. He holds out his hand.

“You are American?”

I nod.

“Have you been a…

In The Night

In the night

When there is no one by your side

You’re out of sight

And there is no whee left to hide


In the night

When darkness is all around

You can’t fight

You can’t even hear a sound


In the night

When you tumble and you fall

It ain’t right

To make your mind appall


In the night

All alone

Made of stone

Made light

 

In the night

You can’t see

You can’t breathe

It’s such a fright


In the night

Chains (Monsters)

Bounded and tied

Ashamed, I hide

From the monsters outside

The monsters outside


Dismayed; without pride

I have lost what’s inside

I have wept, I have cried

Till the waters flooded my eyes


To escape, I have tried

But I’m still bounded and tied

Hiding from the monsters outside

The chains that they hide


But here I lie

With my soul opened wide

I am trying to hide

From the monster inside

At Noon

It was a beautiful sight but Spencer couldn’t help but be angry. The sun was a hot red; glowing in the darkened sky. Rays of bright light flooded across the water; they danced along the lake. It was a tear-inducing sight but Spencer could not enjoy it. How could one enjoy such a beautiful sunset, at noon?

Do You Know How To Love?

Do you know how to love?

Do you know how it hurts?

To miss someone so much?

To long for their touch?


Do you know how to feel?

Do you know how it heals?

When they come back to your embrace?

When you see their loving face?


Do you know to love?

Do you know this gift from above?

Do you know how their smile can make your day worthwhile?


Do you know how to feel?

Feel this joy surreal?

Do you know how to say that they make your whole day?


Do you know how to love?

Words On Paper

With paper and pen

The dreams come to my head

Rushing like a fountain

Falling down a mountain


With a pen and some ink

I write down what I think

Flying like a river

Filled with gold or silver


The dreams come to me

And I set them free

They are flying into the sky

 

Places I can’t see

That where they are going

They are flying so high



The Icognito Writer

Beautiful

Trees and leaves and everything green

They’re so beautiful

They’re so beautiful


Birds roaming free; they’re all I can see

They’re so beautiful

They’re so very beautiful


Blue like the sky, like the birds that fly by

It’s so beautiful

It’s so beautiful


Tears in my eye; raindrops at my side

It’s so beautiful

It’s so very beautiful

The Amazing Goat Of Wall Street

Alexia, a goat that likes pizza went out for a swim on a street that was dead to mankind. using only her super-senses, she decided that she could fly and bring her friends; Spidey, Juicy, Tomothy  and Laquisha. The might five called ‘Liquids’ flew around Wall Street.

Flying at 500 cm/h they were exhausted; they decided to buy some lamborghinis to help replenish their speed. Later, after their 501 m/day journey they arranged their shoes and polished their nails.



The Icognito Writer: Before you ask, no I’m not crazy. I played a game of a word a turn with a friend a while back and this is the result. I just found it so what do you know?

Throwback Thursday: The True Knight

I’ve often heard many girls say

That they want a charming prince.

Night after night, day after day

I thought there was nothing wrong with this.


They wanted a knight in shining armor,

A man of power and fame,

A person of pure glamour,

But human all the same.


And I began to wonder

What is the knight, you see,

This knight in shining armor

Just who is he


And I began to think about my favorite things

My pens, headphones

And the shoes that I would bring

They all started out new

Fresh and neat

But that is no longer true

My favorite shoes aren’t those new ones

They are the ones that I’ve had all the memories with

They were with me even in the rain; yes those one

The ones that no longer fit

And now I hate the glamour

Cause with the charming prince has been bested

A knight in shining armor

Has never had his metal tested.

Throwback Thursday: Once

I used to dream of a faraway land

And a palace so big and grand

That all come near

Trembled in fear

Of its great power


Once


I used to imagine a beautiful princess

Wearing the most extravagant dress

We used to dance

And she would prance

About with my beautiful flower


Once


My room was a dungeon

My glasses made me a surgeon

I played during night and day

 

The chandlier was a sun

Everything was fun

Until that faithful day

 

Now I sit down on my computer

Writing report after report

Wondering where everything went

 

Flowing through the motions

Song after song

Watching my time being spent

 

And I ask myself

Once, just once more

I wish I could see

Past this veil of ‘reality’

And be back to the good old me

 

I try and I try

But it never changed

That room still looks the same

I’m not a surgeon

Its not a dungeon

And the chandelier is out of place

 

I go back to sleep

And sometimes I see

Flashes of who I used to be

The good old me

With eyes full of glee

Oh, full of joy was he


Once
He was once full of joy


Once

Throwback Thursday: Blurred

The day
The night
So frightening on their own
So beautiful intertwined

The blurred line as the sun reaches the horizon
Coming down on its daily decent
And the moon climbs that vertical line
And forms a perfect crescent

No wonder men are driven mad by the moon
While others worship the day
These deities, these monsters
Are powerful anyway

Blurring the line between reality and not
Causing those who forgot
To weep to cry
For no reason, why?

I have no portion here
Just the humble scribe
Writing the words I hear
Recreating the vibe

And as these words don’t go untold
Let these words not be slurred
Let people know
Of the the day when light and night were blurred

Let Go For Tonight

Fell from the sky
We fell from the sky and started walking
Leavin’ our footprints on the ground


It might be a prayer
Or maybe a piece of conversation
Wherever we go we make a sound


So I call your name, the only thing I know
Is I need you here, will you be gone forever?
All that I know, all that I know is we’re here tonight
Turn off the lights


Let go for tonight baby
Let love in your life and be shown; turn off the lights
Let go for tonight baby, who needs sleep tonight?
I need to let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, turn off the lights
Let love in your life baby, who needs sleep tonight?


I wanna drive
I wanna drive into the open
Lookin’ for reasons I can’t find


So I call your name, the only thing I know
Is I need you here, will you be gone forever?
All that I know, all that I know is we’re here tonight
Turn off the lights


Let go for tonight baby
Let love in your life and be shown (turn off the lights)
Let go for tonight baby, who needs sleep tonight?
I need to let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, turn off the lights
Let love in your life baby, who needs sleep tonight?


I need to let go, let go
Let go, let go
I need to let go, let go
Before we’re gone, gone, gone


So I call your name, the only thing I know
Is I need you here, will you be gone forever?
All that I know, all that I know
Is I need you here, will you be gone forever?


Let go for tonight baby
Let love in your life and be shown; turn off the lights
Let go for tonight baby, who needs sleep tonight?
I need to let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go, turn off the lights
Let love in your life baby, who needs sleep tonight?


Let go, let go
Let go, let go
I need to let go, let go
Before we go, go, go


Fell from the sky
We fell from the sky and started walking
Leavin’ our footprints on the ground


Leaving our footprints on the ground



Let Go For Tonight by Foxes

Throwback Thursday: The Rain That Never Fell

It fell

From that high vantage point

Above the ground

That perfect teardrop


Falling

On its way down, pointing

Link the heaven and the earth, grounding

The link between the cliff and the drop


It wasn’t rain

It was a tear

It wasn’t joy

It was pain

 

It was fear for the unknown

It was fear for what has been lost

It was fear for what will be lost

It was fear for mistakes known


It was the rain that never fell
